The following CEDA Archive Users Guide is designed to help new and returning users find, access and make use of data held in the CEDA archives. This pages applies mainly to users of the  atmospheric and earth observations archives, but users of the UKSSDC and IPCC-DDC may also find useful information here.

Further Assistance

CEDA runs a dedicated helpdesk to assist users in a variety of ways from account issues, finding and making use of specific data to scientific and data format enquiries. Users are asked to check this user guide, dataset and format documentation initially as most answers will be already documented, but are welcome to  contact us for further assistance.

We will aim to give an initial response to the query within one working day and to resolve the query as quickly as possible, depending on available resources and query complexity.
